Review: LOST (Werewolf Academy book 5)

By: Cheree Alsop SO SORRY TO SEE THIS SERIES END! I really love this book. It is the last in the series (I think). There is a rumor that the author is writing another book…I certainly hope so. I’ve said this four other times but, I think it bears repeating–GREAT BOOK! Great series. Try it, […]

Review: Vampires (A Boxed Set)

(Original Review posted Apr 26, 2015 ) By: Alice Bello, and Eva Sloan Amazon has sent me an email asking me to review these books…even though I’ve only had them a few days. Decided to go ahead and review what I’ve read so far. That’ll teach you, Amazon, to rush a girl! The writing style […]

Review: Personal (A Jack Reacher Novel)

Bought this for husband. I asked him to rate it. He said, “It was really good. Would like to see this one made into a movie.” I said, “what else”…I’m trying to write a comprehensive review here… Did it have a protagonist, a mystery to be solved, an exciting fight scene? Did you empathize with […]

Review: Blood Rites

By: Jim Butcher My son introduced me to Harry Dresden, the main character of The Dresden Files. Harry is a detective and…a wizard. “…the ‘everyday’ world is actually full of strange and magical things–and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a–well, whatever.” My […]

Review: The Vanishing Game

By: William Boyd Bought this book for my husband. I asked him to rate it. He said, “Started it….but …it was really bad.” Tried it myself…It WAS really bad. I too put it down after just a few chapters. I try NOT to slam other authors because I know for each of us our work […]

Review: Life of Fred–Apples

By: Stanley F. Schmidt Received this extremely quickly. Was thrilled with that. As for the book…so far (and remember, we just got it), the kids aren’t as obsessed with it as I was expecting them to be–as the product description said they’d be. SO FAR. Hoping that changes.

Review: The Dirty Parts of the Bible

By: Sam Torode Lovely story. I’ll be honest, in the first chapter or two I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. Then, suddenly, wham! I was hooked…and I can’t even tell you why. I just was! I have some deep roots myself, in Glen Rose, Texas (where the story begins). My grandmother […]

Review: Night Walker

Boo! Hiss! By: Lisa Kessler They say you get what you pay for and when it comes to this book…they may be right. I got this book at a deeply discounted price….it wasn’t worth what I paid for it. The story line had promise….but the writing fell short. I stopped reading at the third chapter. […]
